Swamishri met with Catholic Bishop John Markovisky. He was describing church activities to Swamishri, and mentioned that they ran four high schools, a university and a hospital. This interested Swamishri. The activities were similar to what he himself was doing back in India. As one administrator to another he asked the Bishop how he raised funds.
"We have bingo sessions," replied the Bishop.
"Has the Bible given permission to play bingo," Swamishri asked. He was referring to gambling in general.
"There is no such reference," admitted the Bishop.
"Then as a religious organisation, is it appropriate that you pamper the 'something for nothing' weakness of the people by organising bingo. If religious people like us let people play bingo, then youngsters will think that religion has given freedom to gamble. He may only play a dollar now, but in the future will be tempted to stake more. Then he will be enticed to steal for his purposes."
"Man is after all only a human," the Bishop replied. "He needs some sort of entertainment. And anyway it is mostly the elderly who come to play bingo."
"Can't you organise another form of entertainment. If they want a social life they should get together in church. Let him do whatever he wants to do outside, but on church premises such things should not go on. Religion should turn people away from stealing, gambling and drugs."
"Swamiji! Your teachings are very high. One should live by them," said the Bishop.

• Bettering People, Bettering Society •

On the 3 May 1990, Bochasan temple was host to a unique convention, the 'Dalit Mahasammelan.' The convention saw the participation of the Harijan castes, dubbed untouchables by a poisoned orthodox caste system. That the harijans were allowed into the temple and served prasad after the assembly was in itself a revolutionary step. Several other local religious leaders were also invited.
Mahant Baldevdas, a Harijan guru of Jhanjharka Savgunnath, shared the stage with the other leaders. He was invited to lunch with Swamishri. The Harijans represented more than 150 villages scattered across the districts of Kheda, Panchmahal and Vadodara.
In his blessings Swamishri said, "From the very beginning the Hindu religion has not supported discrimination. Hinduism has seen the world as a family. The discrimination we see was a later pollutant. The soul has no family or caste. Every soul has within it the presence of Paramatma. The distinctions of this world are to be forgotten. This is very necessary for the uplift of society and our country. If we work for it we will surely move ahead. You need help but effort will be required on your part. By dropping whatever bad habits you have you will become happy. In God's eyes no one is big or small. These are the beliefs of our mind, not God's. If we are strengthened with dharma then no matter what comes our way we will survive. Lord Swaminarayan did not change the religion of the people but their lives..."
Swamishri's efforts to remove the effects of a delinquent caste system includes educating both the 'higher' castes and the 'lower' castes. The 'higher' must learn to accept the 'lower' on an equal standing, understanding that these humans deserve equal rights. The 'lower' castes must work for their progress. They cannot expect to be accepted by the rest of society if they continue to practice things which modern society regards as obnoxious and primitive.

The converted church in Islington had served the Swaminarayan Hindu Mission well for eleven years. However it was too small. A drab warehouse in Neasden had been transformed into a beautiful temple and in 1982 Swamishri was invited to London to reinstall the images that had been removed from Islington.
Swamishri also made the trip to Leicester. The programme was tight. His stay in the UK this time was brief, mainly for the new temple. A lot of other work had also cropped up. It was inevitable, once Swamishri himself was available all problems would be brought to him. During a sabha at Granby Halls one evening, he was catching up on some correspondence. At that time Anandswarup Swami came onto the stage with an Englishman.
"Bapa, this is Frank. He wishes to talk to you," said Anandswarup Swami. Swamishri put his pen down. He was ready to listen and offer a little help if he could. That was why he wrote personal answers to all the letters he received. He wanted to help. Whether a person was a Hindu, Christian or Muslim did not concern him. The human condition was the same everywhere. There was ignorance. If ignorance were removed and replaced by God consciousness there would be supreme joy. Swamishri wanted to teach this truth to everyone. But first he had to attend to problems which the ignorant people experienced to be overwhelming. They were not really problems, just wrong understanding. Correct understanding would make the journey to God all the more feasible. As in school, one had to start from kindergarten.
Swamishri looked at the individual in front of him sitting on the carpet. Yes, he was unhappy, he could see that straight away.
